Trip Notes

In preparation for our Wild Bird Center trip on November 18th, we visited the Hayward Shoreline Interpretive Center and Frank's Dump. The Interpretive Center is a lovely spot, and serves as an excellent demonstration of the dramatic effects of the tide on a shallow slough. It was very gratifying to see so many different ducks around, winter is really here!
